I stayed for one night and this hotel was the lowest priced hotel in San Marcos. I checked in and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I went into my room and it was clean, the bathroom was clean. Yes the hotel is a little run down but it's in a good and safe location.

Absolutely the worst "motel" that I have been in. The rooms were filthy, mold in the shower, and stains on the bedspread. I ended up taking my family to another hotel because there was no way I was going to let them sleep in those beds! And did I mention the air conditioner didn't work? It was 98 degree! When... More

Keep driving. First off There was a faint smell of urine or BO, Wanted to charge my phone and the table to lay it on was horrible. Got some wet tissue to clean it. Black. I was stuck there because of a vehicle repair. I don't think the cleaning person really cleans much of anything just changes the bed and... More

Was this property horrible? No. Almost nothing was well done. The breakfast is "continental" which means it is designed such that you really will only eat it if you have to. The toilets were so slow as to create significant dought that they would succeed in their function. The TV was so old that it would not be easy to... More

This hotel met my needs. It was easy to find being conveniently located off of I-35. It's near restaurants, stores, and the outlet shopping center. The employees at the front office were friendly. There is free Wifi, coffee, and juice. There is a microwave and small refrigerator in the room. However, on to the bad part...The rooms are very old,... More

It was difficult finding a decent priced hotel for some reason; maybe there was something going on because paying almost $100 for this dumpy room was way too much. We reserved two rooms. One had a very bad smell in it. You knew that the carpet in the entry area was very bad because it was one color and the... More

First off let me say this.. The bed I had to cringe and sleep on.... Has a huge blood stain like someone was killed. It didn't smell like air fresheners... I would have preferred that! The smell and room actually made me really sick. I had a fever for 6 days. The floor is gross. The tub doesn't drain. Again... More
